Type 2 Diabetes and Vitamin D
If you have type 2 diabetes and regularly consume vitamin D, you may want to take some potential health factors into consideration.
A recent study sought to determine whether consistent vitamin D3 supplementation could improve insulin sensitivity in those diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and found that the vitamin significantly increased insulin sensitivity among those who are newly diagnosed with diabetes. In general, vitamin D plays a critical role in regulating a person’s use of calcium and can impact the secretion of insulin—making the study findings even more notable.
